    I had a look at their funded projects page. Typical Pakistani story that they never learn from mistakes. After wasting so much money in ICT fund on university professor ( mafia ), ZERO jobs and ZERO impact on economy. Again all ingnite projects are given to university. While these RnD projects should be given to small and medium and industry companies. University is for research and teaching. Not for development. Pakistani youth is being tormented a they do not get funds to launch products. While university professors are laser focussed on projects with commercialization potential. How wise and typical Pakistani loser thinking. Anybody ever heard of tech breakthrough coming out from Pakistan universities? Like cure to cancer, new fuel, any innovation in mobile or telco? Anything in self driving car? Any new material they have invented? These professors who adopted PHD because they needed scholarship money and they are at level of sales man. They do not steal funds from industry. They steal jobs and tax money from Government.

      Is there any estimate how many jobs and companies were created from ICTRND fund? How many professors have private links to own companies and conflicts of interests? Is there any law to save nation from these did honest bunch of losers sitting in universities who are losing to world in their own job that is research and making sure no technology company can be formed in . Is there any estimate of damage to the Pakistan economy done by these dishonest crooks? Are ICT fund or ignite projects sent to professors for evaluation who then get phone call from a friend professor who put forwarded the project? How may projects in Ignite that have word “development” in it and a university professor is doing it?
